Tesla S Sedan revealed
Tesla Motors made a splash a few years ago when they introduced the Roadster, a $100,000 sports car. Not only was it beautiful, but it also ran on electricity and was really fast - not a common combination for EV cars. Since the rollout of the Roadster, they've sold only 250 of them, but anticipation has been building for a less expensive sedan version.
The Tesla S was unveiled yesterday in California, and wow is it beautiful. Hitting the market in 2011 - they're taking reservations now - the S is a seven-seater (!) that can go 300 miles between charges, go 0-60 in less than 6 seconds, and make you the envy of the town - for about $50,000.
It's pricey, sure, but not a lot more than a Lexus SUV hybrid which still runs on gas and holds 5 people. Can't wait to see these in production!
